Service was good and our server was very friendly and helpful. I had ordered the dry ribs and I didn't like them because they were way too dry - but in good fashion I was not charged for them or the alternative chicken souvlaki that I ordered. The Souvlaki was great - fresh, juicy and tender.
My wife ordered the lamb which she said was also perfectly cooked and juicy. The Greek salad was really fresh and the rice had some type of strange (in a good way) flavor that tasted different - I couldn't figure out what the seasoning was.
all in all - a great place
I would go back and I would recommend it!!!

Discovered an Indian Restaurant up at SFU - it is amazing what they have up there now, considering when I was a student there was nothing!
The place had great food and a good beer selection. I enjoyed a Butter chicken and a Curried Spinach dish which was even better than the Butter Chicken. The dishes were served with either rice or nan bread - Indian rice is very good but the nan bread was fluffy and soaked up my tasty butter chicken sauce nicely. Other than that, food was fresh and steaming when it came to us.
Service was good and staff was friendly.
Value was very reasonable, my dining companion and I were stuffed at the end of dinner and dishes were approximately $10-$12 if I recall. Drinks were also very reasonably priced.
I would recommend and go back again!

Cactus club has become the top place to go for fun casual dining and, might I add, where your server will always be a pretty young girl. Unfortunately, that's about it. They raised their prices and it is now not just poor value - but BAD value.
The dishes haven't changed much, they are good, not great, but good. - but once again bad value.
The service and ambiance are great - but at what cost?
The pretty girls provide some nice eye candy but their pretty smiles just make you tip more, further upping the cost of a meal.
Best dish and probably worst value is their chicken rice bowl - tastes great but they skimp on the chicken and charge a premium. Rob Fennie should have left the Lumiere prices at Lumiere.
I wouldn't recommend it and I won't go back.
